Beautiful waters and white sands. Conchas is well away from the town but worth going to. Of all the beaches in the area of Cabo Frio, Araial do Cabo and Pero, Conchas is my favorite.

This is a wonderful beach, if you think to swim, this is a perfect beach. Absolutely clean and unpoluted water. It is located in a reserve and can be reached by car. There are also small restaurants where you can have delicious sea food.

A calm place, with clear and an amazingly blue water. But the very best is the right corner of this beach, a rocky hill, an the access to awesome views as well as the unforgetable and hardcore jumping point. The sands full of shells are something really special as well. One of the most beautiful beaches we've ever known,
